Reconfiguring the Anthropology of Britain: Ethnographic, Theoretical and Interdisciplinary Perspectives

Time: 5:45pm – 7:30pm, Thursday 11th May, 2017

Location: Wolfson Lecture Theatre, SOAS, University of London

The Sociological Review is thrilled to be launching the latest of their monographs Reconfiguring the Anthropology of Britain. For over fifty years, our monograph series has showcased the best and most innovative sociologically informed work, producing intellectually stimulating volumes that promote emerging and established academics. Reconfiguring the Anthropology of Britain continues this trend, exploring timely questions of nationhood, postcolonialism, racialised difference, place, migration, social class, post-industrialism, education, personhood, the environment and more-than-human interactions through the ethnographic study of Britain in ways that engage the substantive and theoretical issues of crucial concern to sociologists and anthropologists today. The monograph also reinvigorates relationship between social anthropology and The Sociological Review, the only sociology journal to have a longstanding commitment to the publication of anthropological research, setting the agenda to open up once more conversations between anthropology and sociology to intervene in pressing social and political issues of our times.

The event will include discussion with the guest editors Dr Cathrine Degnen (University of Newcastle) and Dr Katharine Tyler(University of Exeter), and response from Dr Rosie Read (Bournemouth University).
